Sweetshop Tigers (UK, London)
Category: opportunity, Closes on January 12, 2017
The Sweetshop Tigers 2017 apprenticeship audition will be on Saturday 28th January, 10-6pm at The Place, London. Callbacks will be on Sunday 29th January, at the same place and time.
The audition will be by invitation only for dance graduates who graduated in 2014, 2015 or 2016, and who have not yet completed an apprenticeship with another company.
The Sweetshop Tigers is a non-monetised apprenticeship scheme for new dance graduates, initiated by Sally Marie, artistic director of independent British dance-theatre company Sweetshop Revolution. It offers opportunities for mutually beneficial exchanges with established independent artists in the dance and performance sector, as well as opportunities to visit various choreographers in their creation of new work.
There are 60 independent choreographers working with the scheme, ranging from emerging to high-profile artists. Small groups of new graduates will be paired up with various choreographers who are working on new creations, for between two days and a week at a time, observing or taking part in their processes.
We also assist with blogs, show reels, photos and workshops. Sweetshop Revolution is an associate artist at both Pavilion Dance South West and Canada Water Studios, where The Sweetshop Tigers can access heavily subsidised space in order to work on their own projects as well.
To apply, please send a short video of you dancing, a photo (any) and up to 200 words in writing or a 1-minute speech on the video about who are you and what interests you, to email@example.com. No showreels or studio shots are needed; a film you dancing in your living room will do, as well as a selfie, if you want.
If you are coming from the North or South West, please title the email 'Travel' and we will ensure you are called in the afternoon to allow for travel time.
There will be five 90-minute contemporary classes with some improvisation: on 28th January with Paulette Raineri, a great dancer / teacher / choregrapher working with Sally Marie, James Finnemore and with her own company in Geneva.
On the 29th, Sally Marie will be facilitating a meeting with those chosen for the call back, about what they feel new graduates need. This will be followed by a contact workshop led by Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot, who is also a great dancer, teacher and choreographer. Other choreographers and established dancers will also be present to offer feedback to the dancers auditioning on the 28th.
The application deadline is 12 January, and all successful applicants will be informed by the end of 13 January with their audition time. If you have not been invited for the audition, you will not be allowed to turn up anyway.

Dance Base (UK, Edinburgh) Professional Workshop
Category: workshop, Closes on January 16, 2017
Dance Base Spring 2017 Showcase Participant Callout - In Partnership: Being and moving together. Join Room 2 Manoeuvre's Artistic Director, Tony Mills, for a research project exploring partnering in dance. The research will focus on discovering and refining processes and techniques that allow us to dance both in and out of contact, to partner from the ground to the air and work in duos to larger groups.
Tony will offer insights into R2Ms own practice and processes as a starting point. However, this week is foremost a platform to encourage dialogue, exchange and collaboration amongst each participating artist with a view to discovering new territories in the realm of partnering and moving together. The results of these investigations will be composed into a short performance, presented at the end of the week.
For this research, Tony would like to work with professional dancers and dance students in their final year. Participants can expect to fall, fly, lift and catch and thus, should be in reasonable physical condition to take part.
The project will take place from the Monday 20 - Friday 24 February at Dance Base, 14-16 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JU with a public performance of the work on Saturday 25 February at 20:00. All participants must be available for the full duration of this project.
The project is FREE of charge and is part of Dance Base's continued Professional Development Programme.
Interested applicants must submit a CV and personal statement outlining why you would like to take part in the project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
